Independiente won a thriller in the Doble Visera on Sunday, after thinking they’d screwed it up. They threw away a 2-0 lead to allow Estudiantes a glimpse of a share of the points, but towards the end it was El Rojo who got the win. Ignacio Piatti – formerly of Estudiantes’ cross-city rivals Gimnasia – got an incredibly smartly-taken winner to make it 3-2 with about ten minutes left. Elsewhere, Vélez drew 0-0 away to San Lorenzo, and Boca drew 0-0 in La Bombonera with Atlético Tucumán. In Sunday’s final match, Colón beat River Plate by an Esteban Fuertes penalty to nil in a dull match. You can watch highlights from three of the four matches right here.
